This unusual spin on guacamole is something I first tried years ago after seeing it referenced in another blog. Though I haven’t made it since, it always stuck with me because it’s honestly over-the-top delicious, so when Darcie and I were brainstorming for Small Bites Week, I immediately suggested this. It may sound really sweet with the pear mixed in, but the pomegranate adds tartness, and the initial step of grinding onions with peppers and salt disperses the savory element throughout, so it achieves a balance you wouldn’t otherwise expect.
